Welcome back! I missed you. I hope you had a fun and restful break.

Please find a seat that you think will work for you today.


Grab your notebook and spend 7-10 minutes writing and drawing about what you did over spring break. What did you do? Who did you see? How much did you sleep? When did you get up? What it fun? Boring? etc.

Then talk with someone near to you about it. Be sure to ask them what they did, too.



1. Write: Reflect on spring break

2. Share

3. Schoology > Pink Q4 Folder > Day 1: Words for argument.

If you finish the puzzle, do the second activity in the folder.

4. If time: video & notes


Read for at least 20 minutes every day this quarter!

Look here if you need new sources to read.

"Free yourself so we can be free. We need you. You're the new generation. We're waiting for you to write, to find words and put it together in whatever way you can." --US Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera

Do you agree or disagree with this quote? Write about it in a journal entry in your notebook or on Seesaw.

I'm happy to see you again! Let's have a great week.
